I don’t know if it’s stress or sweating a lot because it’s summer, but I have been having the worst breakouts lately. So, I did what anyone in my situation would do: I mindlessly wandered the aisles of Ulta Beauty in search of a solution.
I left with far more than what I came in for (read my post about splurging… ), but I also found a moisturizer I feel has been helping keep my breakouts in check. Enter Derma E Acne Oil-Control Matte Moisturizer.
With tomorrow marking the official start to summer, I’m loving all of the summer products hitting the shelves: Watermelon shaped pots for plants at the hardware store, super adorable cat kitchen towels at Kohl’s (you just have to see it…), and, of course, fun beauty products at Trader Joe’s!
I recently scooped up the Trader Joe’s Strawberry Lemon Sugar Scrub and the packaging brightens up my shower.
I think I’m a bad runner.
The more I read about running, the more I realize I have no idea what I’m doing.
I started out with a New Year’s resolution to run a 15K and have kept returning to the same race year after year for 7 straight years now. While I am gradually getting faster each race (I’m not counting the year I had just gotten over the flu.. or the year it was hot), I want to get even faster. I have a specific goal I’m aiming for for next year, but it’s ambitious- like shaving 10 to 15 minutes off my total time ambitious. While not impossible per se, it will involve me doing something different.
My streak of trying out Trader Joe’s products continues!
This time it was the Trader Joe’s Nourish Microdermabrasion Scrub Exfoliating Cream that caught my eye. Something about the blue and white minimalistic packaging felt fancy and spa-like, while still coming in at a budget-friendly price of about $5.
After trying (and loving!) the BYBI Strawberry Booster Facial Oil back in August, I was excited when my local Target put BYBI products on a major sale. I ended up picking up the BYBI Night Nutrition Protein Night Cream (among other things.. ) for nearly half the price! Now, that I’ve used the entire tube, I’m ready to share my thoughts. About the BYBI Night Nutrition Protein Night Cream Let’s start with the basics. According to the BYBI website, the…

So, you know how dermatologists say you should NEVER pop your own pimples or pick at other bumps on your skin?
Yeah.. that’s easier said than not done.
But for 2022, I’m making it a goal to establish some healthier skincare habits, which includes trying to leave my skin alone (for the most part!). As part of that goal, I’ve been trying out the Pure Daily Care NanoSteamer available on Amazon. In this blog post, I’ll be sharing my experience using a facial steamer for the first time and my thoughts on whether it’s worth the $49.95 price tag.
I did it!
I survived 13.1 miles– something I could have never imagined doing just a few years ago.
It wasn’t pretty or easy (thinking of you, side cramp at mile 12), but I pulled through and couldn’t be more proud of myself! Now that it’s all over and I’ve had a few days to recover, I’ve come away with four key lessons.
If you’ve spent anytime scrolling through Instagram, odds are you’ve seen the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask.
With its cute pink packaging, the lip sleeping mask looks great in pictures and seems to have a big following.
In today’s post, I’ll share my experience with the mask and whether it’s worth the $22 price tag.
My personal quest to find the best facial oil continues and in today’s post I’m sharing what could be a very strong contender!
I stumbled across the BYBI Strawberry Booster facial oil during a trip to Target. (Yes, it was one of those trips to Target where I needed one thing, but left with many, many more.) The packaging definitely caught my eye as it’s a mix of hot pink and light pink with gold lettering, which gives off a very chic appearance.
I love the idea of acupuncture.
As someone that carries a lot of tension in my shoulders and upper back, the idea of being able to release that tension while also experiencing other physical and emotional benefits sounds incredible in theory.
But there’s a big problem… I don’t like needles.
That’s why I’ve been intrigued by the idea of acupressure mats for some time as the mats feature plastic massage nodes instead of needles. So, a few weeks ago, I finally made the plunge and bought one.
